City Gardens: Giardino Jan Palach

While  strolling through the city and playing tour guide with my family, we stumbled upon this small playground near the MAO (Museo di Arte Orientale). This particular spot was a nice surprise and to be honest a life saver!

We had been sightseeing all day and the girls were exhausted and just wanted to be done with the day. It’s in a gated courtyard and we almost missed it but I spotted a slide so we turned back and went in.

These fun bucket seat swivel so you can do as this little boy did and chill with a book or sit and spin till you get dizzy!

There are plenty of benches so you can rest and let the little ones play. It’s not very big at all so you can easily just sit back and relax without having to worry about them wandering off. There’s also this really cute puppet theater set up.

While my 2 year old happily played and got seriously angry when we left, this play area is more suitable for ages 3+. Giardino Jan Palach is located at Via San Domenico and Via Gian Francesco Bellezia.





*The city tries its best to upkeep these play areas. They’re cleaned once a week and checked for broken and damaged structures. They’ll often place a sticker on the equipment (usually the swings) with the date and time they controlled everything. There is also small plaque indicating the recommended age for use. While most of these playgrounds are gated some may not be completely closed off and most are located near very busy streets.
